Jay-Z and Beyonce
Entertainment power couple Jay-Z and Beyonce are being recognized as the first billionaire couple in the history of music, as they also recently made the 2013 Time Magazine list of the 100 most prominent figures over the past year.
Jay-Z, 43, a highly successful rap artist, fashion entrepreneur and sports investor, makes hundreds of millions of dollars each year. His wife, Beyonce, 31, also makes hundreds of millions each year as a singer and from endorsement deals. In fact, she is set to earn about $116 million from her current “Mrs. Carter” world tour this year.
Together, according to the International Business Times, the couple has already crossed the billion dollar threshold. The calculation was done after adding in the expected revenues from Beyonce’s tour, and her recent $50 million dollar endorsement deal with Pepsi.
